You misunderstand. I (and Brin) are not criticizing 300 for not being historically accurate; we are criticizing it for possessing particular inaccuracies that advance an authoritarian, militaristic agenda.

It's not inaccuracy that is bad, it's inaccuracy in the service of an immoral agenda that is bad.
